I am trying to rotate some text 90 degrees so that it is not visible. However, when I rotate it 90 degrees, you can still see some of the text. I can't figure out why. Even when I play with the rotatation, it still doesn't become completely transparent like I want. Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? Thanks for your help.

You're using a 3D text layer with a camera. You're seeing the perspective you don't see when working in 2D. So play with the layer rotation until it's really skinny -- or even disappears, depending on what you're doing -- and trim the layer out point to that frame. You ought to be able to sell the effect of text rotating out of existence.
